Wondering how to dress for your relaxed lifestyle without looking like a frump?
Watch this video to learn three ways to dress casual, but classy after 40.
Tip #1: Colored jeans are a fabulous news option.
Red, Cobalt Blue, emerald green and almost every color under the sun makes wearing jeans look modern and hip. Pair skinny, or straight leg jeans with a neutral top to tone things down a touch, pair with flats and you have a comfy, but chic new casual look.
Tip #2: Wear a dress with leggings.
Take a short flowing mini dresses that a 20 year old would wear with bare legs and heels, and transform it into an age appropriate look for you. Many of these short dresses can double as long tops that hit at mid-thigh and look fantastic if you pair them with dark leggings, ballet flats or lowed heeled boots. Give it a go and you will see that once you try this look, you will be hooked.
You can wear the simplest outfits, but dress it up with a fitted jacket in a bright color and you will pop. The boyfriend jacket with its rolled up sleeves is a relaxed but polished look. A fine colored leather jacket adds a pop of sexiness. Make sure your jacket follows your curves, nipping in at the waist even if it is just a touch. A defined waist looks youthful and stylish after 40.
